The edition will be limited to 100 special instruments.
The new Custom Artist Edition is a 14-fret dreadnought. The top is made of Carpathian spruce, solid Madagascar rosewood on the back and sides, with a neck carved from mahogany. An ebony head plate features The Mamas and The Papas’ silhouettes inlaid in solid mother of pearl directly above the nut. Each guitar is equipped with MSP7200 medium gauge phosphor bronze SP Lifespan strings.
The model is finished with a polished gloss lacquerwith a vintage-inspired aging toner and is protected in a Geib-style hard shell case with cabernet interior. Each of the limited edition custom guitars bears two interior labels; one label, signed by C. F.

Each of the 100 limited edition instruments is numbered in sequence and will feature Martin Strings.
From 1965 through 1967, The Mamas and The Papas released six singles that hit the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 and released four albums that reached top five of the Billboard 200, although the group disbanded after just four years.
